Damien Straker(Impulse Gamer): An unbounded bore.
Sam Bathe(Fan The Fire): Guns and explosions aren't that exciting at the time that the plot hasn't sucked you in, and lacking the esemplastic, spunky spirit of the original, Machete Kills precisely feels so much more laboured.
Matt Prigge(Metro): It's a debatable gig that may become an endearing single in kind by 'Machete X: Machete Goes Hawaii.'
Jim Schembri(3AW): Loud, pleasantry, ultra-violent sequel to Machete, with unsmiling crater-faced Danny Trejo because the Mexican hero slashing and slaughtering his habitude to justice. Director Robert Rodriguez does which all good, trashy sequels do, that is to deliver more of the similar.

David Nusair(Reel Film Reviews): An visible improvement over its virtually unwatchable forefather…
Rich Cline(Shadows on the Wall): The thin skin is often very funny, even admitting the pacing is extremely slack, atrophy far too much time with pointless exposition and misogynistic smirking.
Susan Granger(SSG Syndicate): Trivial and monotonous…enough already!
Ken Hanke(Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)): If you liked the elementary film, chances are you'll be seized of a good time with this some. (If you sit through the starting a~ Romeo & Juliet remake, it's graceful to mistake Machete Kills for power of invention.)
